Henry Plantagenet, Earl of Derby, Duke of Lancaster, KG - Verlinden 120mm English Knight

Finished up the Verlinden 120mm figure. He's on a temporary base until I can find a more suitable one - smaller.
I used Vallejo acrylics for the entire figure, and pretty much painted him up like how I would a smaller figure. Painting the separate parts and then putting them together afterward.
The great helm and cap of maintenance with royal lion crest makes him look a bit top heavy, but that's probably realistic.
As I mentioned in the previous post, the heraldic lions on the jupon had shallow outlines, which assisted in their painting.
Henry was a great-grandson of Henry III and campaigned in Scotland and Flanders. He was at the Battles of Sluys and Crecy, as well as the Siege of Calais. He died of the Black Plague in 1360.

Here he is below alongside a Front Rank 28mm mounted figure painted in the same arms.
That was a nice little project and now I can concentrate on the Bolt Action game I'm hosting this Friday. Thanks for stopping by and wishing you all the best in the hobby!

  2. Fabulous Dean, and great brushwork on that miniature!

    I do enjoy paint in by larger figures, although the faces can be daunting I think.

    Cheers

  3. Wow! Fantastic looking miniature, Dean! You did it great!
    (it seems a bit odd for me to call it a miniature in compare with 28mm)
    Cheers!

  9. He's looking absolutely gorgeous. One day I might try my hand on such a big figure or a bust as well. Need only find the courage.

    1. Thanks for the kind words, Nick. I'm a quite sure your talented brushwork would translate well to larger scales. This particular figure can be found on ebay for about $25.00. Not a bad price for a "practice" figure :) Warmest regards, Dean

  10. It’s a real beauty Dean! Love the comparison with the 28mm version.

  11. Impressive! I tackled a much more simple 54mm display figure and that was a major project for me--it took me weeks to get it done. Nice display of craft and painting skill here.

  18. Dean that is a stunning job you have done there. I love the way you can see exactly how the 14th century harness has been put together as well. Great work mate!
